Alexis Samelson, LCSW
Adults, Adolescents, & Couples
When you feel stuck, sad, anxious, or irritable, it can be difficult to ask for help, and hard to imagine how psychotherapy could help. But the opportunity to feel heard and deeply understood is one of the best ways to find relief, solve problems, and ultimately create insight and lasting personal meaning. My aim is to provide a supportive atmosphere where you can examine your thoughts and feelings, relationships, and the issues that get in your way.
My approach is collaborative, transparent and empathic, integrating a variety of psychodynamic, behavioral, and mindfulness techniques tailored to meet your needs. Guided by curiosity and respect, the goal is to create an open dialogue so that together, we can help you whether you are troubled by distressing emotions, the struggle to maintain a healthy relationship with a loved one, or feeling dissatisfied with you career.
